About Richard and Jackie Smith
Jackie and I grew up in the Pacific Northwest before settling in Lodi, California wine country in 1991. We enjoy Hawaii for the remarkable way the people, views and experiences completely dissolve all stresses for a truly relaxing vacation experience.
Richard and Jackie Smith purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Richard and Jackie Smith chose Maalaea
Ma'alaea Kai is an often undetected property in the central valley of Maui on the south coast. The property is maintained immaculately with arguably the nicest lawn on the island. The proximity to the swimming pool, barbeques in addition to being on the first floor makes the large private lawn like your own backyard. Waking to the sun rising out of the beach bedroom window directly over 10,023 foot Mt. Haleakala is one of the highlights of a trip to this property.

Amazing condo and grounds
Thank you for letting us share your beautiful ,updated condo.Very nicely remodelled and decorated and totally stocked with everything you might need on your holiday.Our family had a wonderful holiday and our daughter and new son in law had a surprise wedding on the lovely grounds of Maalaea Kai. To us this is the best spot in all of Maui to vacation at.
We loved our stay in your unit. What fun watching the turtles everyday right outside our door! We felt at home here and would highly recommend it!!!
Fabulous Week We will return
This was a great location for us to use as a general central stay while we searched for my brother to buy a place. This had all our needs and more!
Clean, all supplies we needed, organized, nice floor plan, lovely cross breeze , easy access , great check in and out, laundry easy and secure, recycleables clean and not smelly, nice walks daily, close by beach access, pool right outside the doors, gorgoreous sunrises daily, wonderful beautifully manicured lawns, close to everything!
Thanks so much we will return for a vacation next time
Beautiful views, great location and very nice condo.
This trip to Hawaii was my very first and everything about it was perfect! The condo is very clean and kept up nicely. The view is absolutely perfect. Right out your lanai is the pool and just a few steps to the ocean. We saw turtles and snorkeled right out in front of the condo. The condo was well equipped with chairs, floaties, beach towels, cooler, boogie boards and everything we needed. We did rent snorkel equipment from Boss Frogs but I would buy them at Costco next time. Same price and they are yours to keep! This condo has everything you could want and is located fairly close to Kihei, Lahaina and Kaanapali. We had to drive about 20-40 minutes depending on where we went. Close to Costco and the Harbor where you catch the boats for most of your excursions. All in all I was very impressed and would definitely book another trip here.
Mahalo for taking time to give us your review. We do appreciate the effort and the nice review. Hope to hear from you again soon.
Beautiful, relaxing and fantastic hosts!!
What a beautiful property. The condo was very well stocked with extra things such as spices, condiments, beach hear (chairs, cooler, snorkel gear, etc.) The condo is nicely updated. The property grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The hosts were gracious and responded quickly to questions.
Ma'alaea Kai is located in a quiet resort area just blocks from the Ocean Center/Aquarium and Whale Foundation. The proximity to restaurants, bars, swimming and all water sports make this an excellent choice as a centrally located home base.
